Bullets, Rains Hamper Health Workers in Sudan
Darfur has suffered through over a decade of conflict. Even though much has changed after the ousting of Omar al-Bashir and the installation of the new transitional government, the overall security situation remains fragile and violent clashes continue. Umo is a remote area nestled between two mountains in the Jebel Marra mountain range, controlled by an armed rebel group that continues to fight government forces and other armed groups in the region to overpower and control resources. The journey to Umo is a difficult one, especially during the rainy season when tracks become muddy and untrustworthy... MSF's Nasteh Shukri Mahamud tells us about the difficulties our patients face and how our team works in a volatile region trying to overcome challenges.
